Being traumatised means continuing to organise your life as if the trauma were still going on—unchanged and immutable—as every new encounter or event is contaminated by the past
Trauma is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on mind, brain, and body. This imprint has ongoing consequences for how the human organism manages to survive in the present.
Trauma results in a fundamental reorganisation of the way mind and brain manage perceptions. It changes not only how we think and what we think about, but also our very capacity to think.
We aim to inform and support those living with post-traumatic stress disorder, complex post-traumatic stress, developmental trauma disorder and other trauma related conditions, as well as those that care for them
Making sure as many patients as possible understand the most effective ways to access diagnosis and treatment within the NHS.
Creating an active community of patients willing to stand up and be heard, so as to improve trauma related public services
